Yoga: a great stretch to wake up!
Monday, May 09, 2011      12 comments

I was about to head out for a walk when I flipped through the tv channels and found a yoga program just beginning. So I rolled out my mat, kicked off my shoes and joined the beginners. I tried a few of the more advanced poses, but discovered I... Read more
5K walk was such fun!
Sunday, May 08, 2011      6 comments

I walked the 5K Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday. Since I live near the race site I walked 3/4 miles to get there 1 1/2 hour before race time to meet a friend and explore the exhibits and visit the breast cancer survivor area. It was all gr... Read more
Sometimes I let stress get the best of me!
Friday, May 06, 2011      3 comments

We came home to a phone message from my mother-in-law saying she got a letter delivered to her house that was intended for us. Curious, my dh called her right away and was astounded. I had requested an online banking code so I could pay extra ... Read more
What a Beautiful Day!
Wednesday, May 04, 2011      5 comments

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. I look in the mirror and groan. My dh looks at me, gives me a hug and tells me I'm beautiful -- sometimes with words, sometimes with actions, sometimes both. I can look at a gloomy day and see a bea... Read more
Weekend Challenges
Monday, May 02, 2011      1 comments

I went to a state convention for a women't group as a delegate and ate many wrong foods - also many right ones. I got no sleep. I sat way too much. However, I did get in a good workout one day and a decent walk another. So, it wasn't a total... Read more
Fat as a Symptom?
Friday, April 29, 2011      2 comments

I was teased continually as a child about being fat...lots of name calling at school and in my neighborhood. Even my mom got into the act at times that still cut deep when recalled. But, there was something else that I didn't realize was conne... Read more

Challenges....we'll see!
Tuesday, April 26, 2011      3 comments

I did it! I joined two challenges at SP to try and get myself going in the right direction once again. I've not done well lately and though there may be some valid reasons, there are certainly far more plain old excuses. Can't get motivated. ... Read more
New week...new us!
Monday, April 25, 2011      2 comments

My dh told me a couple days ago that he wants to lose about 15 pounds. That will take him maybe a couple of weeks. At first I was sad just thinking of him getting to where he wants with very little effort, but then I thought again. Even if he... Read more
Easter blessings!
Sunday, April 24, 2011      3 comments

He is Risen Indeed! It will ring out around the world. I feel so blessed to live where I can gather with others and proclaim His Name, where we can pray and worship together without fear of arrest or worse. So, even as I celebrate with friend... Read more
Rage stress... not so good
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      3 comments

I know there is good stress and there is bad stress. Well, today I had to toss out all my plans to work with our internet/phone/cable provider that managed to cut our service on Friday instead of making sure our service at our old address was a... Read more

Cheering them on...
Saturday, April 16, 2011      2 comments

I so enjoyed the nice walk to watch the 1/2 and full marathoners turn into the final stretch. I waved. I yelled. I clapped. I saw a few friends along the way. But, I was on the sidelines. I've not been able to run in many years thanks t... Read more
Roller Coaster Yikes!
Thursday, April 14, 2011      2 comments

I'm so up and down in my healthy/not so healthy routines that I feel like I'm on a roller coaster. I go from a great exercise day to a couch potato day. I go from a healthy eating day to a terrible binge day. I mix and match these ups and dow... Read more
Sunny with a chance of weight loss!
Monday, April 11, 2011      3 comments

After much snow, rain, and lots of cloudy weather, the sun is out and the forecast is for a pretty pleasant week. So, knowing I'm not likely to get caught in a storm, I so look forward to getting outdoors every day this week. Just getting me a... Read more
